Bio-Structural Integration

Wondering what Bio-Structural Integration is? Learn from the Manual Osteopath who developed the concept:

We believe that my method of Bio-Structural Integration™ developed for the treatment of musculoskeletal conditions is going to change the face of Alternative Therapy in Vaughan and beyond.

Most people are familiar with physiotherapy, chiropractic therapy, acupuncture, or Massage Therapy. Unfortunately, these modalities are used in isolation and often address the symptoms, not the underlying cause of pain.

These treatments offer pain management, but they do little to solve the problem because they only focus on one system of the body (either on the muscular system - as with massage therapy - or the skeletal system - as with chiropractic treatment). Methods of therapy which are centered around only one system simply don’t work to optimally address the bodily dysfunction causing pain.

A Different Type of Physical Therapy in Vaughan

The body functions as a unit. When the body gets injured, the central nervous system may be affected, the joints will develop misalignment, the muscles will be in spasm, connective tissue and fascia become tight, the inflammatory process sets in, and even internal organs can be affected.

Every cell in our bodies works synergistically to maintain homeostasis. When one system is disturbed the other cannot function properly.

The Effects of Bio-Structural Integration

In our proprietary Bio-Structural Integration™ physical therapy method we address the dysfunction at multiple levels and treat every system that is affected and causes pain.

Within a single treatment we use:

  • Cranial Osteopathy to release Central Nervous System lesions.
  • We follow cranial corrections with Osteopathic Structural Adjustments to correct the joints and Myofascial Release of connective tissue.
  • Next, within pain management approach, we use Neuromuscular Massage Therapy and Muscle Energy Techniques to reduce muscular tension.
  • Finally, we apply electrotherapy to interrupt the pain cycle and stabilize the structural integrity.

All of the treatments listed above are done within a 1-hour treatment. After the structure is realigned we recommend BioFlex Low Intensity Laser Therapy to deal with chronic inflammation (which causes degenerative changes within musculo-skeletal system) and to stimulate the healing response down to the cellular level. This approach helps your body to recover faster. The Laser Therapy session may take 30 minutes to 1 hour depending on the condition being treated. Elimination of inflammatory process also assists in structural stabilization of the joints.

As a result of this treatment, muscles and ligaments relax, fascia releases its tension, and flexibility increases, bringing back normal range of motion and reduces pain.
